R.I.P Kath Overman

The St Bernard’s OC Football Club and community is sad to report the passing of Kath Overman after a battle with cancer.

From the clubs foundation in 1963 until this very day Kath, with husband Peter and family have had a synonymous connection to the St Bernard’s OC Football Club and its community.

The “first lady of our canteen” back in the 60’s, Kath was a staunch supporter of the club and in particular of her sons, then grandsons teams through an unprecedented long period at the club. A great support to Peter throughout his many roles at the Club including the inception of the Junior Football Club and Peter being its inaugural President. Kath was the Mother of past players Mick, Tony, Jack, Chris and Matt, Grand Mother to past and present Senior players Tom, Will and Harry and current Junior players Ben, Zak and Harrison. Kath’s daughters Anne and Sue also spent many years supporting the club and Sue married past player Darren Looker. Kath followed and took a keen interest in every team the Overman boys have been involved with. Her warm and infectious personality endured her to others and in particular teammates of all the boys who have many fond memories of Kath with Peter and the family at the Overman household and club functions.

All our thoughts, prayers and condolences go out to the extended Overman Family and friends.

May you rest in peace Kath.
